County Executive Calls Water Increase Unfair Burden In Rockland

CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- Rockland County Executive Ed Day has released the following statement on proposed SUEZ water-rate increase:

"Without question, this proposed rate hike will unfairly burden residents and businesses in Rockland County. What's most troubling is that nearly half of the proposed increase will go toward recouping monies expended by SUEZ during its push for a Hudson River desalination plant in North Rockland."

"By allowing the desal process to go forward, the PSC is complicit in driving our water rates even higher. Rubber stamping the request under the auspices of 'There's nothing we can do' or 'It's the cost of doing business' is not satisfactory."
